RCL Corporate- Hurricane relief response

Recommended Posts

Azamara is under the corporate umbrella of Royal Caribbean.


By now we have all seen the hurricane devastation in the Bahamas. RCL is donating $1,000,000 to charitable partners in the Bahamas. Details are here- https://www.royalcaribbean.com/cruise-ships/hurricane-disaster-relief. They will be matching additional by the public. https://www.padf.org/hurricane-dorian-royal


If you have been feeling uncertain as to what you could do to help, this could be an option. In this day and age it is really hard to tell the genuine agencies from the inexperienced or scams.

On the PBS evening news tonight there was an interview with a woman who heads up a Caribbean agency that deals with disaster relief.  She announced that a Royal Caribbean ship will be somewhere in the Bahamas (maybe Nassau) to provide some assistance.  Very nice news in the face of devastation.

Kudos to RCL for the quick response in sending ships to the area to provide disaster relief and how nice all the guests are pitching in to help feed everyone during this terrible time.  May God Bless everyone impacted in the Bahamas and the situation in North Carolina is looking terrible as well.  I am a property owner on Hilton Head, SC and we were lucky HH escaped major damage but others are suffering terribly. My heart goes out to everyone and Thank you RCL!

Here is a good article about how a Celebrity ship, crew, and passenger volunteers are preparing 10,000 meals to deliver to Freeport on Grand Bahama island.



"...A rotation of the company's cruise ships will be passing through Freeport to help provide meals and other items, including lawn chairs for sleeping, pillows, bedding, towels and medical supplies..."


"...The ship was carrying more than 5,400 pounds of food — to make everything from cold cut sandwiches to hot dishes, such as chicken, rice and beans. In addition, more than 300,000 bottles of water were being handed out by the cruise operator's ships. In the coming days, the company is looking to establish a field kitchen on land to continue providing meals..."

I just got an email from Azamara about this and asking for donations. Here it is



Help Building Back the Beauty of the Bahamas.
Earlier this week, Hurricane Dorian unleashed a catastrophe unlike anything seen in this part of the world. It's now our time to provide aid to the Bahamas – our partner for nearly five decades – and help restore the natural beauty and the vibrant spirit these charming islands are known for. 

This is why Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. has partnered with the Pan American Development Foundation (PADF) – to provide disaster relief to our Bahamian neighbors and friends in this time of need, by matching all donated funds up to $500,000. All donations made will support the recovery and reconstruction of Bahamian communities in the wake of this disaster. 

As our most loyal members, we ask you to join our efforts. This emergency relief contribution will not only bring basic necessities and stability to this disaster-stricken region, but will also restore the Bahamas to become once again the vibrant gem of the Caribbean, filled with mesmerizing turquoise waters, colorful villages, and passionate, hard-working people we all know and love.

It would be good for on board fundraising to help raise money,  such as raffles and donations as well as the charge for bridge and galley visits being donated. More people would pay if they knew it was going to a good cause
